On Monday we released Round One of the FFChamps Rookie Draft Invitational and here is Round Two. This is a very tough group to draft with as all of them are sharks, but please feel free to let us know which picks you agree or disagree with. We all have thick skin and can take it, well most of us anyway, lol.

We hope you enjoy the ride and don't forget the other rounds of this six round draft will come out each of the next three days.

Monday Round One : Tuesday Round Two : Wednesday Round Three : Thursday Round Four : Friday Rounds Five & Six


2.01 Deebo Samuel WR Carolina Panthers – Frank

Deebo isn't the biggest receiver but what he lacks in size, he makes up for with toughness and his strong hands. He lands in an ideal spot with one of the smartest offensive minds in Kyle Shanahan and a promising quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo. He has competition for targets but will make the most of his opportunity. The 49ers used a second-round pick on him for a reason.

2.02 DK Metcalf WR Seattle Seahawks – Andy

I was kind of shocked and stunned to see Metcalf slide to the 2nd round. I was never in the crowd of having him as a top pick, and maybe his real-world NFL Draft slide dictated this happening here, but he lands in one of the best possible scenarios for any rookie. There is nothing but value and upside taking him at 14. 

2.03 Devin Singletary RB Buffalo Bills – Joe G

Singletary averaged an impressive career 6.4 YPC and is one of the most elusive backs in the 2019 draft class. His ability to break tackles allows him to tack on yards after contact and he's also got good hands, as evidenced by his 45 receptions during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. With a backfield consisting of veterans LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, Singletary can quickly develop into the Bills' primary back by the end of the season.

2.04 Dwayne Haskins QB Washington Redskins – Joe P

I believe Jay Gruden can fix his release point and other small flaws. Haskins could prove to have a nice Fantasy career as a low end QB1 someday. The athleticism is there as are some improving weapons. I was concerned about Deshaun Watson too a few years ago, but he figured things out really quickly with Bill O'Brien. Same deal here.

2.05 AJ Brown WR Tennessee Titans – Jim

Brown was my favorite receiver in this group. He just does everything well even if he doesn't have elite speed. I don't love the landing spot in Tennessee but there is a good chance they have a different QB next year which may help. If he would've landed in a better spot he would be a 1st round pick, but his overall talent should shine through.

2.06 JJ Arcega-whiteside WR Philadelphia Eagles – Sigmund

Henderson or Johnson would have been huge values here too as the most important take seems to how valuable seconds are this year. He's productive and he landed in a good offense, albeit one that likes to spread the ball around. Carson Wentz's style includes lots of low percentage throws that require strong plays on the ball at the catch point, and Arcega-Whiteside can oblige.

2.07 Irv Smith Jr. TE Minnesota Vikings – Mike

The third tight end drafted in 2019, Irv Smith has an opportunity to be a significant Fantasy asset long-term. The Kyle Rudolph trade rumors are real as he is in the last year of his contract with little guaranteed money; this leaves Smith as a primary tight end option out of the gate. Will there be enough balls to go around with Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook in the mix? To be determined but I like this option at a position which has become a mess year after year for Fantasy owners.

2.08 Justice Hill RB Baltimore Ravens – Corey

Hill is a very athletic young back who can make people miss in space, but it's going to be a struggle for him to climb up the Ravens' running back depth chart. In training camp he will have to show the ability to catch the football out of the backfield in order to get more reps. 

2.09 Darrell Henderson RB Los Angeles Rams – Bob L

Normally when the Rams have drafted a "back-up" running back to Todd Gurley, no one blinks an eye. But, after the playoffs/Super Bowl and the lack of playing time by Gurley, you have to wonder why they would move up in the draft to take Darrell Henderson. The talent is there and if the opportunity arises in 2019, he could be a great pick!

2.10 Diontae Johnson WR Pittsburgh Steelers – Shane

I don't think Diontae Johnson is special. He is small and slow. That doesn't really sell him for rookie drafts, but he is explosive and has correctable issues. What sells him is his landing spot: Pittsburgh. Yes, the Steelers have Juju Smith-Schuster and James Washington, but the development of WRs have been their bread and butter. Outside of Smith-Schuster and Washington, the Steelers have taken players like Emmanuel Sanders, Markus Wheaton, Martavis Bryant, and Sammie Coates in the 2nd day of the draft. Not perfect, but a very good track record. I will take the Steelers staff developing Johnson and him becoming a Fantasy asset in a year or two.

2.11 Jace Sternberger TE Green Bay Packers – Dwain

Like Isabella, I love Sternberger's landing spot due to scheme and quarterback. Talent wise I nearly went with Miles Boykin, but the run-heavy nature of Baltimore paired with quarterback questions steered me away. The Packers target pecking order is wide open behind Davante Adams. Marques Valdez-Scantling flashed as a rookie, but he and the other youngsters aren't being handed anything - Sternberger can contribute immediately from the slot. Jimmy Graham is a short-term obstacle to a full-time role, but I will bet on Sternberger's two-year outlook with a chance to be the number two target on an Aaron Rodgers team.

2.12 Miles Boykin WR Baltimore Ravens – Bob H

I'm not a fan of the landing spot, but let's just assume for the sake of this draft that Lamar Jackson can do more than run. That perhaps he can actually throw the football. If nothing else, the fact that Baltimore is adding players like Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin lends some credence to the notion they believe he'll need to pass at some point. If so, these two rookie wideouts will pose unique challenges to opposing defenses. At this point, I'll go with the size/speed advantage Boykin will have over most of those defending him and hope Jackson can deliver.


The one thing we know about this draft class is that where they landed would be key to their draft capital and we are starting to see that here in Round Two as several players who were thought to be in the Top-12 pre-draft are starting to fall because of where they landed. AJ Brown fell into this category for me. Who fits that bill for you?

This might be the only round of this draft where Joe Pisapia didn't take the player I wanted, so thank you Joe. I was hoping that Justice Hill would fall into the third round, but of course that didn't happen. I like that pick as Hill really has a chance to make an impact even in year one on a run-heavy team.

Please let us know what you think and don't forget to check back on Wednesday for Round Three.
